Originally a Colorado native, Renee attended Colorado Mountain College, where she graduated with an associates’ degree in Applied Science, Veterinary Technology in 1999. She pursued a career in a day practice in Grand Junction, where she became head tech shortly after being hired. Renee stayed in Grand Junction for four years, then moved to the East Coast where she worked for Friendship Hospital for Animals, a very large veterinary primary/emergency/referral clinic in Washington, D.C. Renee was quickly promoted to supervisor of the ER shift and remained employed there until 2007, when she moved back to Colorado to be closer to her family.
Before joining Alpenglow Animal Emergency and Critical Care in 2009, Renee worked as a supervisor at an emergency clinic in Basalt alongside some amazing veterinarians, including two boarded criticalists. Renee loves emergency and critical care medicine, is thrilled to be working at Alpenglow and hopes to continue her education and become VECCS certified in the near future. She was promoted to ER Nursing Supervisor in early 2013, and is excited to expand her role within Alpenglow VSEC.
In her spare time, Renee enjoys the outdoors — fishing, camping, hiking, and white water rafting. She also enjoys playing volleyball and softball. She has two pets — an 10-year-old boxer mix named Petey, and a 9-year-old cat named Lucy, and a 2-year-old rescue cat named Willow.
